Saint Manikkavachagar - (5)
« on: October 27, 2008, 10:53:30 AM »
The other composition is Tiruvammanai, sung also in Tiruvannamalai.
This again explains the bliss of Siva and his 'body'.  Muruganar
has also composed Sri Ramana Tiruvammanai.

As told earlier, the ammanai, is a play by girl children, keeping stone
peebles or hard seeds and flinging them in front of them, up  and down.

This composition is also of 20 songs.  One song runs like this:

" I shall wear the bunch of Konrai flowers
And then embrace the mighty shoulders of Siva and then
    go into a trance!
   I shall quarrel with Him and then ask for His ruby red lips
    and the nectar oozing out from there!
I shall search for Him, melt in my Self and contemplate His feet!
I shall become tired after sex, and then ask for more!
I shall play Ammanai, singing the glory of His fire-bearing hand
   and dancing feet!

The 20th song runs like this:

I had Siva, who is rare to be had, the king of Tirup Perundurai!
He came on the royal horse, blessed the devotees.
After removing the defects of them, and then taking into account
   only their good deeds,
He shall take us, cut the knots of relatives and all that crap!
He shall snap the three handcuffs*
We shall only hold on to Him, the Primordial Connection,
And play Ammanai, with a bliss that cannot be described! 

(* The cuffs of ego, karma and maya)   

Arunachala Siva.
